I used to believe that sunflowers would try to kill people by shooting poisonous seeds at people.

I used to believe that when the leaves fell off the trees in fall, that the city hired someone to pin them back up every spring!

When I was little I used to play outside with all our friends, and we had quite large play areas enclosed by the houses, so really safe, one of ours friends saw some pampus grass growing in a few places on the estate, and told us that the only place in whole world where it grew was on our estate, and that it was really endangered. For years afterward we wouldn't go near it, and got rally upset if our ball or us fell into it. We would apologise to the plant if a branch was broken off.

At age four I went with my mother and grandmother to get potatoes, being a "city kid" I found it very strange to go out to a field instead of a store. As they dug up the first mound to show me that potatoes were indeed there. I asked indignantly: "Where's the BAG"

My ma told me not to pick dandelions, because dogs pee'd on them. So for years I thought that dogs pee'd *only* on dandelions, and if a dog wanted to relieve itself, then it would have to go find a dandelion first..!

One day we were driving and we smelled something aweful. My parents told me it was a "chicken plant." I missunderstood and whenever something stunk...I figured a "chicken plant" was growing near. I found out about 4yrs. later that it was a chicken plant where they proscess chickens. I was so embarrassed. I had told all of my friends about the stinky "chicken plant!"

because the tree's branches looked like roots,
I used to think that in the winter the "otherworld" underground had a strange summer! something to do with a alter-world. TOO many science fiction no doubt!

As a kid in New York State we had a modest garden and a grape vine but no vine fruits that need a hot summer. So I grew up imagining what a tough, monster, tangled, Herculean vine watermelons hung from.

My mother convinced all of us kids in our family that the large rhubarb in the garden was a Man-Eating Plant.

When I was much younger, we used to have white daisies in our yard. Some of these daisies had magenta spots on them. My mom said that these spots were created when fairies peed on the daisies. My sister and I believed her for years! I'm still not sure where those spots came from, but I will never forget the tales of the "pink fairy pee".

I used to believe that trees changed into beautiful colors in the autumn because they were festive and wanted to celebrate Christmas.

Before I went to a planetarium for the first time, I thought it was just a room full of plants.

I used to believe trees could feel and had feelings. I thought when their leaves rustled, they were upset, and so I'd always give the trees hugs so they'd feel better.

I never knew that the yellow dandelion and the white one with all of the fluffy seeds were the same plant. I was about ten, and I wanted to make dandelion salad like from the Hunger Games, but my mom said that the fertilizer wouldn't be a good thing. So, she suggested blowing the seeds and growing that. Waaaaaaait a minute... What?

When I was about 7, I was so naive. My Brownie leader gave me a huge cockleburr & told me it was a porcupine egg. I kept that thing warm for days before my bubble was burst when someone told me it was just a weed.

I used to and still believe that if I look at fungi or go near it for too long, the fungi will make my brain melt! I don't know why I think this but now I try and avoid fungi whenever I can!

My friends scared me when I ate Boysenberries. They said they were poisonberries and couldn't wait till I died so they could have all of my toys.

The shrub wasn't really even boysenberry; but I suffered no ill effects (except for the paranoia).

me and my elder brother always made fun of our younger cousin. once we took showed him a dry leaf of mango tree and told him if he touched it he 'll get crumpled. Until he was 14 he would just run away whenever he saw the leaf.
